Congratulations to local 12 year old Lexi Johnson who won the Regional title last month for Martial Arts in Sparring category held at Thornbury Leisure Centre. The event drew in competitors from local areas, as well as from Wales and Bournemouth.
Lexi fought against a number of girls her age and belt grade to make her way in to the final! The 2 finalists then went head to head and were both at 2 points a piece with the 3rd point taking the title – which Lexi was pleased to achieve!
Lexi is due to be competing in Manchester next week on 14th October for a chance of the title of World Champion having qualified for the world championships in West Brom recently where she achieved 2 podium wins for sparring and forms.
Lexi is also currently the International Champion in Dragon Tang Soo Do. She attends Winterbourne International Academy and trains in her martial art at Baileys Court Primary School.
We wish Lexi the very best of luck next week and look forward to hearing how she gets on.
